This video showcases an amazing acrobat doing a ball rhythmic gymnastics routine.

If you’ve never heard of this style of gymnastics here is the details from Wikipedia.

The Ball is a piece of apparatus used in rhythmic gymnastics. It is made of either rubber or synthetic material (pliable plastic) provided it possesses the same elasticity as rubber. It is from 18 to 20 cm in diameter and must have a minimum weight of 400g. The ball can be of any colour. The ball should rest in the gymnast’s hand and not rest against the wrist or be able to be grasped.

Fundamental elements of a ball routine include throwing, bouncing or rolling. The gymnast must use both hands and work on the whole floor area whilst showing continuous flowing movement.

The ball is sometimes placed on their back while the gymnast does a skill such as a walk-over. From wikipedia

It’s an amazing display of flexibility and control to do ball rhythmic gymnastics as well as the other styles including rope, clubs, hoop, ribbon and freestyle.
